If the title words ending -se all rhyme, you are probably Scottish, but my subject for today is not linguistics but rodents.
See him yet?
That should be clearer.
Here is a close crop of our small, furry visitor. I had been looking at a blue tit on one of our bird feeders when a movement on the ground caught my eye. It appears that a mouse has been assisting our feathered friends in cleaning up dropped seed.
I didn’t know how long he would be there so grabbed my camera and used the 50mm lens on it (at f/4, ISO 800 and a 1/25s shutter speed). I did try a couple of shots down a pair of binoculars but this did not give enough light for an overcast morning.
At the moment, this appears rather cute but it will be a different story if he and his family decide to take an interest in the culinary properties of bulbs and seedlings!
